The video shows two "well-groomed ladies," the CIA agent's wife Laura Carlson and the wife of yet another CIA agent, Janice Chisholm, leaving the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and heading to a coffee shop.
Having entered the coffee shop, Chisholm went to the toilet while Carlson waited for her near the door. A while later, a man in a hat went out of the toilet and hastily left the coffee shop.
It transpired that this was a U.S. intelligence officer, Timothy Finnegan, and that the brunette who walked into the toilet was actually him.
Laura Carlson collected the disguise kit from the toilet. A few minutes later she met her husband Hynes and his colleague Steven Chisholm, whose wife the U.S. spy was made over to look like, in the coffee shop.
The spectacle with makeup and impersonations was played out by the foreigners in the hope that CIA officer Timothy Finnegan would shake off Russian counter-intelligence to be able to meet with his informer, the television program said.
The television channel also showed a video of a man wearing a hat, glasses and a carrying a baby in his hands on a more than one hour-long walk in frosty weather in Moscow. The baby turned out to be a doll used as a disguise by CIA agent John Granos, who was expecting to meet a contact. Granos is officially a secretary at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.

The case of the three alleged CIA operatives attracted interest after it was found that one of them, a white man, disguised himself as a black woman using a photographic mask and a heavy jacket.
"Over the past year, security services exposed 290 foreign agents, their activities were suppressed in one way or another. This did not necessarily mean arraignment, or arrest, it could be deportation through diplomatic channels and other methods of suppressing their intelligence activities," Russian author and intelligence service expert Oleg Khlobustov told the channel.
The three apparent agents, Robert Hines, Timothy Finnegan, and John Granos were shown sporting various disguises. The most unusual was that of Robert Hines, who dressed as a friend of his wife while taking a stroll with her and then changed into his regular attire in a restaurant bathroom. Hines apparently wore a mask based on a photograph of Janice Chisholm, as well as a heavy coat.
The segment also showed elements of Ryan Fogle's kit, including wigs and a backpack with a pull-over which allowed the bag to change colors.
